Her 2019 so far:

It's is hard to believe Caitlin Foord is only 24, as she looks forward to her third World Cup in Australia's front line.

An ever-present goalscoring threat in attack now after being shifted around in the early part of her international career, Foord has played herself into form in 2019.

With 10 goals from 18 shots on target in the Westfield W-League 2018/19 Season, she showcased her predatory instincts to lead her side to the Championship.

The attacker then arrived in the NWSL and instantly made an impact, picking up a goal and assist in Portland's opening win over Orlando.

Two goals in the Westfield Matildas last two matches, including a wonderful solo effort against the USA, which took her overall tally to 16 is proof that the young striker's star shines every bit as brightly at international level.

Her partnership with fellow frontwoman Sam Kerr is likely to be key to Australia's chances of success in France.
